The coordinator, however, said only one civil case and two criminal cases were resolved, while others were pending in courts.
Ohwoevworhua disclosed that a total of 145 cases, comprised of 55 criminal cases and 90 civil cases were received by the state office in 2020.
She added that more than 20 of the cases were completed while some were settled out of court.
The coordinator cited the COVID-19 pandemic as the reason for the few number of cases handled in 2020.
Ohwoevworhua explained that the council was mandated to offer free legal services to indigent persons and advised those in need to patronise the council.
She added that the council’s target is to ensure equality and justice for all Nigerians. (NAN)
